Portugal’s national ballet company, Companhia Nacional de Bailado (CNB), performs “Fifteen dancers and uncertain time” to mark the end of the Mudam’s exhibition on Portuguese artists Joao Penalva.
Penalva designed the set and costumes for this performance, which draw on his experience as a dancer and visual artist. Using diverse materials, he creates works that combine language and image and develops poetic fictions that leave room for interpretation.
This dance piece is choreographed by Rui Lopes Graça and performed 15 permanent dancers. The soundscape is conceived by David Cunningham.
